As the home of General Motors, Flint, Michigan has a long history of auto manufacturing which helped the city’s early growth. However, after most of the plants were shut down the city saw a rapid decline to the now current population of just under 100,000 residents. The city has struggled over the past decade with encouraging manufacturing growth by providing small-business tax incentives, and the city is currently trying to attract more commercial industry to help. Residents who are sticking it out should make sure they are comparing the options for cheap insurance Flint can offer. The more the city changes, the more the rates change so we suggest re-shopping your policy frequently.
